what a busy few weeks

I haven't updated about my job in awhile so I figure I probably should. It has been quite the rollercoaster ride at work and in my life here. I'm finally on a break from housesitting for awhile which is good, I've been hanging out with people from counterculture with some regularity, I joined the bell choir, I'm playing my guitar in the contemp worship on Sunday and I'm also playing at counterculture on Saturday night. I've come down with a cold and crave the comforts of home because of that. I'm missing midweek worship a TON and I'm trying to figure out where I can fit in and use my skills. I'm still looking for a car which is not going terribly smoothly.

I went to the state fair on Sunday which was pretty fun. I had a chance to get to know some of the counterculture folk better which is a good thing. I found out some of the history behind their ministry but there are still giant gaping holes in the formation of it.

As far as my job goes, we moved in 4 families last Tuesday and Wednesday and started their orientation today. Tomorrow is some more orientation but I'll miss some as I have to go and open the offices to have a desk delivered. Our offices are really funny right now because our case manager has a desk and everything else is on the floor. I find myself out there about once a day just sitting on the floor doing things. This afternoon we met with phone companies so hopefully we'll be able to move out there soon. My desk right now at the church is pretty funny. It is a file cabinet. My desk had to go out to the offices for our case manager.

Once we get all set up I'll be able to start working on more of what I'll be doing for the majority of my stay out here. I'll get to start planning recreational activities, looking for resources for the residents and various other things. Right now I'm playing the role of doing everything everyone else can't right now and just sort of checking in on people. Sometimes that's pretty boring but I know that I'm doing it all to help these families out.

Well I need to get back to practicing my guitar, but I am still around and hopefully will be able to update a bit more.

I miss my g-funk. I'll have to find some time away from Hellmark...I mean Hallmark to come visit you in NM. I just finished Necklace of Kisses so I was totally thinking of you and our FLB phase in high school. Hope everything is well for you
